Selecting a BIM Object

We have made a significant number of products within our portfolio available as BIM objects.

These objects provide detailed information on the products and the geometry which represents their physical characteristics. The objects also visualise the data that gives the products their technical properties and offers additional behavioural data to allow the object to be position or ‘behave’ in the model in exactly the same way the product itself would in reality.

Our in-house BIM specialists are always on hand to share their passion, expertise and knowledge in the creation of project specific content for the architectural industry.

All the BIM objects have been created to the NBS National BIM Object Standard and are available in all major formats (for example Autodesk Revit) and are COBie and IFC compatible.

Understanding BIM

Building Information Modelling (BIM) has created a process for digital collaboration between manufacturers, architects, contractors and asset owners. A process which is redefining the way we build and the performance outputs of construction projects.

BIM at Mannok helps streamline efficiencies in our manufacturing processes to provide designers, architects and specifiers with uniquely formulated products they can trust to use in the digital modelling of their projects.

Virtual design tools such as 3D modelling and simulation are growing in popularity and sophistication, and the integration of these into a building project has significantly increased.

The use of BIM in this way means a virtual vision of the building can be created before it is built.

Each and every product in the Mannok portfolio used in a project, from cement to insulation to roof tiles can be selected, set in place and analysed through the technical information which is associated with it, helping to see and understand the design of the built asset in its entirety at a very early stage.

The virtual building then becomes a reference for better construction, and it continues to evolve, even after it passes to the asset’s owners and operators through its maintenance management.

BIM makes all this happen, not just by producing a 3D design, but through the intelligent management of the information contained within the products specified in the building, allowing each member of the project team to understand the properties, implications and benefits of their product choices. An intelligent model used in this way, brings greater precision to project feasibility, cost and schedules.
